This week's fifth and final chapter didn't draw as many people as this week's fifth and final chapter. In a week, horror (temporarily) beat out adventure in a number of stories, such as the poor opening of another R-rated comedy and the fact that a movie that came out of nowhere sold a lot of tickets, but not necessarily to people who go to the movies.

'Insidious: The Red Door' Box Office Dominates

INSIDIOUS: THE RED DOOR – Official Trailer (HD)

"Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny" lost the top spot at the box office to the fifth installment of a newer series, "Insidious: The Red Door." This was a big surprise.
Usually, the fifth movie in a horror series like "Insidious" movies would feel like an old hat, even if it was a movie with Harrison Ford, who was 80 at the time, playing one of his most famous roles. "Insidious: The Red Door" was Patrick Wilson's first movie as a director. He, Ty Sympkins, and Rose Byrne all played their roles in the first two movies.
The first movie in the Insidious series came out in 2010 at the Toronto International Film Festival. Since then, the series has been one of the most consistent horror titles. The first Insidious movie made $54 million during its run, even though it only made $13.2 million on April Fool's Day in 2011. In 2013, the first of its sequels came out.
Still directed by Wan, his PG-13 horror story that jumps around in time and takes place in other worlds started with $40,2 million and ended with a series-best $83.5 million. Insidious: Chapter 3 started off well in June 2015 with $22.6 million and finished with a series low of $52.2 million. But Insidious: The Last Key opened with $29.5 million and made $67.7 million in the United States.
Sony waited as long as possible to release reviews. They probably knew that critics wouldn't be kind, since the movie only got a 36% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Even though reviews didn't really matter, "The Red Door" made $5 million in previews on Thursday and $15.2 million on Friday, giving it an expected $32.6 million over the weekend in 3,188 theaters, or an average of $10,242 per theater. That's the second-best start for a horror movie in the U.S. this year, after "Scream VI" in March.
"The Red Door" also made $31.4 million internationally, giving it a $62 million worldwide start. Mexico, which brought in $5.8 million, and the Philippines, which brought in $3.7 million, were two of the top foreign markets. The Philippines was the top horror opening for the country. Like many of Blumhouse's movies, this one was made on a small budget of $16 million, but it made money in just its first weekend.
With Insidious: The Red Door, it all seems to be coming to an end. The ending/first episode of the show, which was led by star Patrick Wilson, made the most money this weekend with $32.7 million. It started off with a series-best $5 million in Thursday viewing. Except for the first movie, which opened to a 4.06 multiple thanks to good word of mouth, the sequels have never done better than a 2.31 multiple.
This year's The Pope's Exorcist came in at number 2.22, and Scream VI came in at number 2.43. Based on how the films turned out, The Red Door is likely to make between $67 million and $76 million at the box office. This is more than enough to put the $16 million movie into the profit column. It would also be a perfect score in that area. The total cost of all five movies is said to be $42 million, and as of this weekend, they have made over $575 million around the world.

Conclusion

Big summer movies are still having trouble at the home box office, where Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny lost to a horror movie. Insidious: The Red Door won the weekend of July 7-9 with an expected $32.7 million. It beat out Indy 5, which dropped to No. 2 with an estimated $26.5 million in its second weekend.
Even though the reviews were bad, The Red Door did better than expected and had the second-best home opening of the series, behind only 2013's Insidious: Chapter 2 ($40,3 million), when prices are not taken into account. The movie also did very well overseas, making $31.4 million for a worldwide opening of $64.1 million on a budget of only $16 million.
